security kind of levels off, discretionary spending we actually have made some both defense and nondefense, we've seen that go down. other mandatory programs. as you can see, mr. president, when it comes to deficit reduction and getting our debt under control, entitlement reform, that upper line that is going off the charts, is where the bodies are buried. yet if you listen to my friends on the other side of the aisle, the problem is not our entitlement programs. the problem, they say, is that the american people simply aren't being taxed enough. of course, the actual numbers tell a different story. over the last 40 years, federal revenues as a percentage of the gross domestic product have averaged roughly 17.9%. while in recent years that number has decreased due to the struggling economy, tax revenues are at a pace to rise above the historic average and settle around 19% of g.d.p. let me repeat that. absent any changes in tax law, revenues are set to rise above historic levels relative to g.d.p. or the gross domestic product. so despite my friends' claims to the contrary, the root of our
